Back-to-School Night — September 14, 2023

Posted August 31, 2023

All McKinley families are invited to join us for our annual Back-to-School Night event on Thursday, September 14 from 4:00pm to 5:30pm! Back-to-School Night is the perfect opportunity to sit down with your child’s teachers to learn more about classroom rituals and routines, curriculum, and school policies. It’s also a great chance to ask questions!

Teachers will offer two identical sessions. Families can attend the one that works best for them, and families with multiple students can attend both!

Please arrive on time for your desired session to avoid disrupting the presentation.

  • Session #1: 4:00pm to 4:40pm
  • Session #2: 4:45pm to 5:25pm

Does Your Family Want Interpretation?

We are happy to provide interpretation services to families who would like them! Please contact our office at (720) 424-5600 or to request interpretation.

Interpretation requests must be received by 4:00pm on Friday, September 8. We will do our best to accommodate requests received after this date, but cannot guarantee services.

We’re Offering Back-to-School Night Childcare!

To support our families, we are offering free childcare during our Back-to-School Night event! Childcare will be provided by school staff in our library for ECE-2nd graders and in our gym for 3rd-5th graders.
